# Anyone know how to do this question?

1. I am going to treat my lawn with Greatgrass liquid lawn food. The instructions on the bottle tell me to dilute 1 part Greengrass with 15 parts water, then apply evenly.

Three hours later the treatment should be repeated, but with a mixture of 1 part Greatgrass and 24 parts water. I have worked out that I need to make up a total of 12 litres of diluted liquid for each application.

How much Greatgrass will I use altogether today

What have you tried so far?

The question can be reduced to 3 lines, mostly in numbers/ratios then you should be able to work it out from there.
